Slow, Deep and Hard (30th Anniversary)

Limited Green And Black Vinyl 2LP
Slow, Deep and Hard is the debut studio album of Type O Negative, released in 1991 on Roadrunner Records. The album has a rawness that was prominent in Peter Steele's previous band, Carnivore, but it incorporates elements that became standard for Type O Negative, merging styles including doom metal, gothic rock, new wave and industrial music.

Slow, Deep and Hard is a semi-autobiographical album with heavy amounts of black humor, based on a failed relationship in which the vocalist/bass guitarist Peter Steele was involved. In keeping with the band's notable humor, the album's cover artwork is a blurred image of sexual penetration. According to guitarist Kenny Hickey, Steele based a riff of Gravitational Constant: G = 6.67 × 10−8 cm−3 gm−1 sec−2 (later known as Gravity) from the theme song of the 1964 American sitcom "The Munsters".
